Kipp there are some units that make a plug in harness for the main power on the ignition, but every other custom needs are seperate. i.e. the seats and defrost. those will require additional parts and wiring to hook up. if you could get the remote start installed for $300 with the seats and defrost then that's actually a prett'y good price.

dbenney just called them back today. They said instillation is 3 hours labor at $85/hr... seems like a bit much to me. from what i have been told it is a plug and play remote start system and only takes like 15-20 minutes to install.

Hey there,

Remote start would be awfully nice now that the weather is getting a bit cooler. Your dealership should be able to quote you a price for installation as well; I'd advise that you give them a call back so they can fill you in on the details.

If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to me via PM.

Have a great day!
